Identify data sources to explore how well your state’s case review system is functioning.
While preparing for the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR), child welfare agency staff and their partners can use this Systemic Factor Data Planning Worksheet to plan for assessment of how well their case review system meets federal requirements. A well-functioning case review system provides individualized case-planning for children and families statewide and supports timely, high-quality administrative reviews, court reviews, and hearings.
Complete the worksheet’s fillable tables to:
- Document available data sources that can be used to respond to Statewide Assessment questions and demonstrate systemic factor functioning
- Plan to fill identified data gaps and address data limitations
The tool draws from and should be used together with the more comprehensive information presented in Assessing Systemic Factor Functioning Using Data and Evidence. After completing this worksheet, use similar worksheets to identify data sources for other systemic factors.
